Senior Pastor

Community Bible Fellowship Church of Red Hill

Red Hill, PA 18076

Denomination: Reformed

Category: Senior Pastor, Lead Pastor

Posted on: June 08, 2021

Time Type: Full Time

Job Description:

WHAT WE SEEK:

CBFC seeks a lead pastor who is absorbed with the Gospel and can communicate it effectively.
We seek a shepherd who can lead believers to maturity through deepened belief in the Gospel and instruction in God's Word; a man who is skilled in handling Scripture; a man who loves the doctrines of sovereign grace; a man who loves to share Jesus with others.

The elders envision a multi-pastor church, so the lead pastor should be a man who can work with and mentor an associate pastor as well as provide leadership to the board of elders.


REQUIREMENTS AND DUTIES:

1. Preaching/Teaching: We see this as being the core of the lead pastor's duties. Strong communication skills; exposition and application of Scripture; speak the great majority of Sundays during the year; as needed, speak for weddings, funerals and other events.

2. Discipleship/Counseling: We see the church's lead shepherd as having a strong emphasis on discipleship, whether one-on-one or in groups; plus counseling of individuals as needed.

3. Leadership: The lead pastor should be a "leader among leaders," serving in a lead role in a plurality of elders, casting vision for the church, mentoring other leaders, and generally being the lead voice in guiding the flock in growth and service for the Lord.

4. Care: The lead pastor will be available for caring ministry, including visitation of the sick, following up with visitors, and leading others in prayer.


SUMMARY:

CBFC is a church on a mission. We aim to proclaim the Gospel (Matt. 28:18-20), preserve the truth (2 Tim. 1:13-14), love each other (Rom. 12:10), and bring glory to God (1 Cor. 10:31). We seek a lead pastor who can guide us in these things.

The Bible Fellowship Church has procedures and policies that guide the pastoral search process. The Faith and Order (bfc.org > About Us > Faith and Order > Principles of Order) spells out qualifications for Elders and Ministers in Article 204. This article stresses an elder's spiritual qualifications (1 Tim. 3, Titus 1, 1 Peter 5) and the expectations for what the BFC terms "minister," i.e., the lead elder among elders. A candidate for minister at CBFC, accordingly, must work with the BFC's credentialing committees and affirm the denomination's Articles of Faith (also available under About Us at bfc.org).

COMPENSATION:

The position is full-time (40 hours per week). Salary is based on qualifications and experience. Benefits include health insurance, contribution to a retirement fund, vacation days and housing allowance.

Soli Deo Gloria!
